FOXBOROUGH — He might be able to leap over a moving car — more on that later — but receiver Brandon Lloyd is hoping the second half of the Patriots’ season finds him jumping into the end zone more often.

Lloyd, phenergan free sample signed to a three-year, phenergan free sample $12 million deal in the offseason, phenergan free sample began his Patriots career with a bang: five catches in Week 1, phenergan free sample eight the next week, phenergan free sample then a season-high nine (for a season-high 108 yards) the week after that.

Save for a six-catch, phenergan free sample 80-yard game at Seattle, phenergan free sample Lloyd’s numbers have dipped a bit since those first three weeks. Phenergan free sample He’s been held to three receptions or fewer in four of the Patriots’ last five games, phenergan free sample including a single 6-yard grab in the overtime win against the Jets on Oct. Phenergan free sample 21.

His most recent game — the 45-7 victory over the Rams in London — saw Lloyd catch just two passes. Phenergan free sample Both, phenergan free sample though, phenergan free sample went for touchdowns, phenergan free sample possibly a positive sign as the Patriots get set to come off their bye week with a home game on Sunday with the Bills.

Despite the week off, phenergan free sample can Lloyd carry over that momentum of getting into the end zone?

“It was two catches, phenergan free sample” he said.

True, phenergan free sample but both went for touchdowns. Phenergan free sample Won’t that help his confidence?

“It was two catches, phenergan free sample two touchdowns, phenergan free sample” Lloyd said. Phenergan free sample “We still have a lot of work to do.”

Lloyd has made it his goal of establishing good chemistry with quarterback Tom Brady, phenergan free sample but knew it wouldn’t happen overnight. Phenergan free sample Halfway into his first season, phenergan free sample it remains very much a work in progress.

For Lloyd, phenergan free sample and for Brady.

“I think I said earlier, phenergan free sample in the spring, phenergan free sample that I don’t think this year we’ll be at a point where we’re like, phenergan free sample ‘All right, phenergan free sample we got it, phenergan free sample’ because we still have so much work to do, phenergan free sample” Lloyd said. Phenergan free sample “We’re working hard to improve on that, phenergan free sample week by week and day by day, phenergan free sample but it’s a group effort, phenergan free sample and that’s what we’re moving forward with.”

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Phenergan free sample We just keep working at it, phenergan free sample so we go out there in practice and we work on things and Coach [Bill Belichick] tells us things that we need to do better. Phenergan free sample We’re always trying to make those improvements. Phenergan free sample I think you just have to keep going out there to work at it and see if it can be better each day.”

With 37 receptions for 435 yards and three touchdowns, phenergan free sample Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, phenergan free sample which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, phenergan free sample448 yards. Phenergan free sample That number appears safe, phenergan free sample barring an exceptional second half, phenergan free sample but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, phenergan free sample combining with receiver Wes Welker and tight ends Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez to give Brady plenty of powerful options through the air.

That’s the great aspect of the Patriots’ offense. Phenergan free sample It could be a different standout every week, phenergan free sample either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

“The teams that I’ve been on, phenergan free sample regardless how talented that I’ve been compared to other pass catchers, phenergan free sample I’ve never been declared a No. Phenergan free sample 1 target, phenergan free sample like a Larry Fitzgerald or a Calvin Johnson, phenergan free sample where it’s clear, phenergan free sample” said Lloyd, phenergan free sample who is in his 10th season, phenergan free sample but is already on his sixth organization. Phenergan free sample “Coming to a team like this, phenergan free sample it’s natural for me, phenergan free sample to make sure that the chemistry between me and Tom is there so when he needs me as an option, phenergan free sample I’ll be available for him. Phenergan free sample They want me to be open, phenergan free sample and they want me to catch the ball.”

Targeted 69 times this season, phenergan free sample Brady and Lloyd are missing almost as often as they’re connecting. Phenergan free sample What felt forced early in the season is now a normal part of the offense: Lloyd, phenergan free sample working mostly on the outside, phenergan free sample using his speed and jumping ability to make plays downfield.

That jumping ability was on display in a video that surfaced this week from over the summer, phenergan free sample when Lloyd appeared to leap over a Smart Car moving at 35 miles an hour. Phenergan free sample Impressive, phenergan free sample but Patriots fans would prefer to see him soaring into end zones in the second half of the season, phenergan free sample when championships are decided and playoff posturing begins.

“It seems like the games are a lot bigger, phenergan free sample they mean more, phenergan free sample they’re more important coming into the second half of the season, phenergan free sample coming into November and December, phenergan free sample” Lloyd said. Phenergan free sample “Things are starting to shake out in the conferences and the divisions, phenergan free sample so you have stuff you can look forward to, phenergan free sample stuff that you can improve on.”
